Two notorious cemetery guards have been placed behind bars after they were caught with heads of corpses on Sunday, January 17.
Reports from Ondo State, Nigeria said that these security guards were spotted with a bag by a resident and their movement caused him to blow an alarm.
They took to their heels but where caught by the youth who tried to lynch them. Timely intervention from the state police saved the guards from mob justice.
The Punch reported that, “Very early today (Sunday) somebody went to defecate in a bush beside the cemetery and he saw Alhaji with a sledgehammer and he broke one of the tombs in the cemetery.”
“After some minutes he came out with a bag. So the person that saw him raised the alarm and we rushed to the scene. When we checked the bag Alhaji carried, we saw a human head in the bag.”
“When we went around the cemetery, we discovered that about 44 tombs have no dead bodies inside them, they have been exhumed by ritualists. So we have handed them over to the Amotekun corps.“
Police has confirmed the arrest of the guards with one identified as Alhaji.
